Little Meets Big.
Could your little one use a Big?
It all starts with the right role models. And Big Brothers Big Sisters is the place to start a relationship with one. For almost 40 years, due in large part to private donations, we’ve been able to recruit, screen, match and support mentoring relationships that have changed the lives of more than 10,000 youth throughout Ozaukee County – one little at a time.
You’ll feel the impact as much as your child.
A study for Big Brothers Big Sisters found that kids with a Big Brother or Big Sister are:
- More confident
- More likely to steer clear of drugs and alcohol
- Getting along better with their family and friends
- Feeling better about themselves
You know what’s best for your child. We’ll need your help from the start, providing information about your child’s strengths and needs, and ultimately approving the Big Brother or Big Sister match. But your role doesn’t end there.
Safety from the start.
Your child’s safety is extremely important to us. Big Brothers Big Sisters conducts a thorough background check on every volunteer in our program, and every relationship is closely monitored and supported by a professionally trained match coordinator.

Spending time together out in the local community is primarily how Bigs and Littles develop their relationship. After all, to change a child’s perspective of the world, it helps to spend some time out in it.
Sometimes the best place for enjoying activities together is at the child’s school. And, the best part is, it can be a great learning experience, in or out of the classroom.
